Pro Bowl voting has begun.....
 
http://www.nfl.com

Who from your team do you think will make the pro bowl?

Be realistic here.

Jason Campbell-Far,far, far, far, far outside chance. Romo, Eli and Brees are locks basically with Aaron Rodgers, Kurt Warner, Donovan McNabb, and with the media maybe even Matt Ryan in front of Campbell. However if Garrard can make the pro bowl who knows. If Skins win 11 or 12 games and Campbell has say 18 TD's and 2 INT's who knows.

Clinton Portis-Great chance. Clearly the best back in the NFL right now. Leads the league in rushing by a pretty big chunk despite playing the tough part of their schedule already. Unlike Turner he seems to play even better against tough competition. Sealed the win against Dallas and rushed for over 140 against the #1 run defense in the NFL the Eagles, in Philly. 6 rushing TD's is 2nd in the NFL behind Ronnie Brown and he is the only back in the NFL to be averaging 100 yards a game. He is averaging 107 right now. 4.7 ypc.

Santana Moss-Slight chance. Could still make it with some big games but right now Fitz, Greg Jennings, Plex, Quan, TO, Roddy White, Steve Smith would all get more votes than him.

Chris Cooley-Great chance. Clearly the #2 TE in the NFC behind Witten, but no one else in the conference really comes close to him. Cooley made it last year and is pretty popular with fans across the league. He is second in the entire NFL behind Witten in receptions and yards.

Chris Samuels. Good chance. The skins staple as a pro bowler, has played at a high level since he entered the league.

London Fletcher-Slight chance. Any Rams or Bills fan will agree with me that it is an absolute shock and shame that Fletcher has never made a pro bowl in his career. He is arguably the best active player right now to never make a pro bowl. He has the most tackles of any NFL player this decade, more than Ray Ray or Urlacher or anyone else. He is 7th in the league right now in tackles and should make the pro bowl but unfortunately will probably be overlooked again.

Carlos Rogers-Slight chance. Has come back from injury and stepped his game up, but will be hard to make the pro bowl.

Laron Landry-Good chance-Should be getting recognition for what he has done so far.

Chris Horton-Small chance. His name is starting to catch on around the league. The kid is an absolute ball hawk. Tackles and blitzes like a backer, runs like a corner.

Vote Turner, Abraham, and White!

Splat 10-13-2008 06:10 PM

Chiefs - Dustin Colquitt is the only player that has a chance but it will be hard so many great punters in the AFC.

AntoinCD 10-13-2008 06:10 PM

Patriots

..........

I voted for Portis and Cooley. Don't see anyone else making it. Maybe London Fletcher but that would be tough.

I did. Was tempted to put Ryan as well but couldn't bring myself to do it.

Go_Eagles77 10-13-2008 06:14 PM

McNabb has a chance, possibly Juqua Parker but he is pretty unknown. Quintin Mikell should go but like Parker his is relatively unknown but he's playing lights out. Possibly Asante Samuel. Sav Rocca is one of if not the best punter in the NFL right now.

Splat 10-13-2008 06:17 PM

I was just looking over the list an the AFC is slacking this year at RB the top 6 rushers are all NFC.

Edit: Does any one else feel it is kinda early to be voting?

Yatta! 10-13-2008 06:17 PM

Greg Jennings, Aaron Kampman and Charles Woodson should make it for the Packers.

And yes it is ridiculously early to be voting. We're not even half way yet.

The Unseen 10-13-2008 06:18 PM

Rashean Mathis and Josh Scobee are the only guys I can think of for the Jaguars.

Flyboy 10-13-2008 06:19 PM

Drew Brees? Just maybe?

As a skins fan with the worst punter in the league Durant Brooks I can appreciate the importance of a punter and Rocca I think is pro bowl deserving in the NFC. But I do think Scifres is clearly the best punter in the NFL.

Draft King 10-13-2008 06:20 PM

Michael Turner - Great Chance, lead the league in rushing yards going into Sunday and sure to continue to carry the rock.

John Abraham - Great Chance, lead the league in sacks going into Sunday, brings constant pressure despite the double-team.

Roddy White - Medium Chance, third in the league in receiving yards going to Sunday, one of the most talented young receivers in the league, he will only improve. Downside is the casual fan doesn't know his name.

Michael Boley - Small Chance, after one of the best years out of the linebackers last season, Boley is playing just above-average, and not great. He will most likely improve as the season goes on.

Hopefully one of our O-Lineman can get their name out there, they are playing great. (Sam Baker anybody?)

Vikings

Steve Hutchinson, Kevin Williams

in the maybe department, Chad Greenway and Antoine Winfield.

Turner, Abe, and White all deserve it. I think they make it in because people will see their stats on NFL.com and vote them in. And Ryan might have a shot now. He's been all hyped up now as the next great one leading the Falcons to 4-2 as a rookie. I wouldn't be shocked to see him in there.

The Dynasty 10-13-2008 06:24 PM

I did the Voting earlier, I had some Homer picks such as Hutch, McKinnie, Birk, AD, Sharper, Williams Brothers, Allen, Winfield and Greenway. Out of those I think Hutchinson, Birk, AD, Pat and Kevin Get in and Winfield. Allen is possible. Also living around Buffalo i had to vote for Lynch and Edwards and couple others.

I'd say so far Winfield is a certainty

Giants

Eli Manning: If he keeps up the good play I think he is a lock, if he slumps or stumbles near the end of the season I do not think he gets in. If he can reach 30 TDs I think he gets in.

Brandon Jacobs: He has a very small chance but not impossible, if he keeps making highlight reels of great players like Laron Landry he can get in. If he stays consistent, keeps up his great play and does not get injured he has a shot.

Plaxico Burress: If Eli does good Burress does good as well. He will benefit from Eli, and also suffer from Eli. If Eli makes the pro bowl I think he has a very good chance of getting in, if Eli does not get in he does not get in simply put.

Chris Snee: The anchor of a very good Giants O-line, I think he gets snubbed every year but he should have been in the pro bowl at least two years now. Probably won't get in, a Cowboys will probably get in over him, he should be in though.

Justin Tuck: If he can get 10 sacks he is a lock to get in, the media hype and all that he just needs to not get inured and keep his steady production and he will be in the pro bowl.

Fred Robbins: Our best player on defense right now, he probably will get snubbed because people do not know too much about him, but he has the most sacks on our team with four. Fred Robbins is a very good pass rushing DT, who is having an excellent season.

SeanTaylorRIP 10-13-2008 06:30 PM

If there are only 3 RB's who get in I think that Portis and Peterson based on production and media attention are close to locks so long as they don't slump or get hurt and for the last spot I would have Turner leading right now, with Gore, Marion Barber, then Jacobs following. Barber will surely get a bigger workload now with Romo hurt and Felix possibly also. My prediction at the end of the day is Portis, Peterson, and Barber making the squad. Oh yeah for Skins forgot about Mike Sellers. IMO he is the best FB in the NFL. NFL Network is recognizing him for that but pro bowl FB is random. It's basically the name people now most, Sellers probably isn't that. But if it were fair I think that Sellers and LaRon McClain would be the two FB pro bowlers in the AFC and NFC.

wicket 10-13-2008 06:30 PM

For the Saints IMO!!!!!

Drew Brees: Our only sure fire Pro bowler

Jamaal Brown: Perhaps, is playing really good but not great.
Jahri Evans: Our only offensive lineman that should make it.
Jonathan Vilma: He has just been awesome and is getting better each week. Dont think he'll make it but he should make it.
Mike McKenzie: One of the best corners in the game, however I dont think he'll get the recognition he deserves.


Reggie Bush: Will have a chance making it as a return guy, returns to few kicks perhaps?

If Colston and Shockey had been fit all season they would stand a good chance.

Guys missing out but deserving a mention: Big Will Charles Grant Patrick Karney and Lance Moore (yes Lance Moore, he has looked awesome thusfar)

SeanTaylorRIP 10-13-2008 06:33 PM

As solid as Lance Moore has been I would bet my car he wouldn't make the pro bowl. I could name 10+ off the top of the dome in the NFC that would make it over him.

Moore has played well but I think mentioning him in pro bowl terms is maybe jumping the gun a little.

49ersfan_87 10-13-2008 06:34 PM

49ers

-Frank Gore, RB. Leading the league in yards from scrimmage. He's still a stud.

-Andy Lee, P. Still a studly punter.

-Brian Jennings, LS. You all wish you had him.

Yeah...not much else. Willis has been alright but our DL is so poor that he keeps getting swallowed by Offensive Lineman.

SeanTaylorRIP 10-13-2008 06:35 PM

Patrick Willis.

ATLDirtyBirds 10-13-2008 06:38 PM

Also, it won't happen because he isn't a Dallas Cowboy. But Stephen Nicholas should be all over that ST player. He's made quite a few big plays for us already.

I think Ovie Mughelli, Sellers, Greg Jones, and McClain are all very close.
